Re: phone for remote

Can you make the SSID and password the same as your previous router?  If so, everything should re-connect.

Re: phone for remote

What @Strega said. Your Roku will just see it as the same network it previously connected to and reconnect on its own.

What model Roku player do you have? As long as it's not a Stick model, you can buy an inexpensive universal IR remote that supports Roku players. Many can be found for less than $10. However, if you have a Stick (models 3400, 3500, 3600, 38xx), they do not support IR, so you have to have a real Roku remote for them.
